like the university of virginia larry sabato think they could do. right now the biggest danger the president's party faces is bad morale. people who voted for him are disappointed with the bad economy. they felt closer to him two years ago than they do now. he's got two months to do something about it to salvage a rough result. to save the senate seats of progressives barbara boxer, patty murray and russ feingold. to give joe sestak and jack conway and alexei giannoulas a better chance and maybe help bringing in harry reid, as well. every one of these candidates could lose bringing about a total democratic calamity. every one of these candidates has a solid chance of winning. the key is for the president to campaign to be the person he was from 2004 through 2008. the inspiring hard-working focused democratic hero that he was. he needs to sell his connection as he did through all that time with the prospect of change. he's been working on change creating jobs, doing health care, cleaning up wall street, working for a peaceful role abroad. he's got to sell the fact that he barack
